in thread (OT) CSS Codes

HTML markup ought to be used for semantics1, and CSS for presentation (and hence, there's generally2 no translation from one to the other)

Something of a strange thing to say, and only makes sense if you ignore the entire history of HTML.

HTML has a <font> element. For many years, in HTML 1, 2 and 3 it was used to set fonts. Now it's deprecated in HTML 4, but it still works and you can translate between the font tag and a CSS font declaration perfectly well.

kids today don't know what line-noise IS ...

    What is it? So eager to post you cannot read further than the line you reply to? Short attention span? Plain stupidity?

    Which words of

      I don't know why you're being so rude. You're clearly wrong, generally as well as specifically. I'm not talking about a few edge-cases or exceptions, I'm talking about a massive difference between versions of languages. Would you say that you can't do object-oriented code in perl, "generally", and tell me not to bother you with the counter example of perl 5?
